Mashikakuscreen-shot-2016-09-27-at-21-41-14 is a beautiful typography project that is composed of over 9000 characters, all done in a super angular structure that is inspired by an old form of typeset used in advertising during the Edo era. Read more about it in this Spoon & Tamago post. I quite like the items you can get printed by them, and it looks like they had a great workshop at the Fab Cafe in Tokyo. Go here to create your own icon using the typeset — I’m kinda tempted by a cushion with my wife’s name (pictured).
